Adaptive Music Lesson Package

Arts For Healing offers individual adaptive music instruction in piano, guitar, drums or clarinet for children and adults. A discounted package price is available for adaptive music lessons. An individualized intensive program meeting one week Monday through Thursday will be offered for a reduced rate.

This form of instruction provides individuals the possibility of “playing” their instrument and experiencing music making before they actually have learned how to play or read music. The structured improvisations take black and white note patterns that easily fit into simple chord progressions to make any combination of sounds “work.” This open ended form of expression creates a student-teacher bond that encourages trust and establishes motivation for learning.

The cost for the weeklong Adaptive Music program (Mon-Thu) is $395. Contact Arts For Healing to schedule your individual Adaptive Music Lessons.
